It s tough to know all the right tools that a soup aficionado s kitchen should have. We ve pulled together a "must have" list for a well stocked soup kitchen. Now pulling together a well stocked soup kitchen is a snap! Stainless Steel Straining Equipment: The perfect soup strainer is used in a variety of ways. You ll need a chinois strainer which is made of fine woven metal mesh and is designed to remove all solids. You ll need a chinois to create smooth pureed soups or bisques. You ll also need two sturdy strainers for removing solids from your stocks. Making stocks in a pot with a pasta insert makes removing large solids (such as a chicken carcass) safer and less cumbersome. We suggest getting an inexpensive china cap strainer for removing solids from hot liquid when you re not using a large strainer.
Plus a functionality. The lid keeps your soup warm there s a notch for your ladle the handles and lid make carrying hot liquid safer and the tureen s materials are often designed to help hold in heat. One of our Soup and Supply cooks at one point had four soup tureens in her personal kitchen. Each offered a different look allowing her to match the tureen to the soup or occasion. Her choices included an elegant tureen for formal occasions rustic tureen for hearty/earthy soups exotic for some her more adventuresome soups and her favorite a basic traditional homey tureen that was perfect for a classic soup such as Turkey & Noodles. We re always hunting for new ones to feature let us know if you find one that s truly unusual.

A roux of butter and flour may also be used as a thickener. The longer the roux is cooked the darker and more flavorful it becomes. Be careful not to scorch the roux or it will give the soup an unpleasant burned taste. Cream is another alternative to not only thicken but add a luxurious richness to soups. A cornstarch slurry of 1 part cornstarch to 2 parts liquid will also thicken soup; do not boil or the solution will break down. Freezing and Reheating Soup... Most soups freeze beautifully. Consider preparing large batches of soup so that there will be extra to freeze and serve at a later date. Chill soup in the refrigerator and skim off any fat that rises to the surface before freezing. Freezing cream-based soups may cause separation. If the soup does separate while reheating whisk vigorously with a wire whisk or try blending it in a blender for a few minutes to smooth it out. Reheat frozen soups in the microwave or thaw at room temperature and heat in a heavy saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.
